My friend Michele recently had a big birthday that ended with a zero. Michele really likes to have a good time and laugh with friends, so I decided to make her an Adult Diaper Cake. This was a frugal gift because I bought most of the supplies at Dollar Tree.

How to Make an Adult Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake Supplies

adult diapers or incontinence pads
rubber bands
wide ribbon
hot glue gun and glue sticks
large plate
adult health items such as hemorrhoid cream, denture cleaner,  arthritis cream, vitamins, pill reminders, and reading glasses
Supplies for an Adult Diaper Cake


Roll up a diaper and wrap with a rubber band. Repeat until all diapers or pads are wrapped up.
Put 4 or 5 wrapped diapers together and secure with a rubber band.
Keep adding diapers to form a cake layer.

Create three layers for the cake.
Glue the bottom layer of the cake to the plate. I used a plastic charger plate. Cardboard would also work.

Glue the layer into place.
Place a chopstick into the second layer.
